Blueberry Sorbet

There's nothing like fresh picked blueberries but now what do you do with them? Make sorbet, of course.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 1 quart


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 pints blueberries


  • In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, water and lemon juice and cook, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
